The Wider Image: Behind enemy lines, Ukrainian woman survives with her chickens 
Zinaida Makishaiva, 82, who survived Russian occupation, stands in her kitchen as she speaks to journalists, amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine, in Borodyanka, Kyiv region, Ukraine April 13, 2022. Makishaiva was not too shaken when Russian tanks first showed up in early March, but then Grad missiles smashed into her home, destroying her chicken coup. "The doors were blown out. I took the chickens in because I needed something to eat. I didn't have anything to eat except for potatoes, just that. There is no water, no gas, nothing," said Makishaiva. The Russian troops came in three waves, she said, the first being the most violent. One day several soldiers entered her house, demanding that she stay in the cellar. "'Get in the cellar, you old bitch!' (the Russian troops said). I told them: 'Kill me, but I won't go'," REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "BENSEMRA UKRAINE CHICKENS" FOR THIS STORY.
